TissuePatchDural poster at AANS: abstract now available

Dr Paolo Ferroli and colleagues from the Carlo Besta institute in Milan have a poster entitled “Avoidance of CSF leak after Microvascular decompression with clinical use of a new synthetic adhesive film” at this year’s AANS meeting. The paper includes details of 100 patients who underwent MVD surgery, half of which involved use of TissuePatchDural sealant film. Follow up of up to 18 months showed no post operative leaks in treated patients whereas 2 leaks were identified in the controls.
